The Orca culture of giving (food)

We love our relationship w/ The Rainier Valley Foodbank. We gathered much rainbow chard today- bags and bags. Kids harvesting and donating food is what this program is really about- giving a darn about the world.

Yes, they were excited! Since our chard is set to flower, it was a good chance to discuss plant life cycles and the fact that when edible plants go to flower or seed- it is time to harvest before they expire.

It was hard work harvesting in the sun, so we got to snacking some kale flowers. We continued our discussion of what it means when plants flower.

There might have been a nap time on a bed of mint we harvested also…
